#218 closed Feature Request (Completed)


Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Jpm
Milestone: Component: Documentation
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


I would like to see a more detailed help example of StringFormat. The example provided really doesn't do anything for the many variations that could be used with this function, and the descriptions of the features are next to me at least. There are a few other help examples that are a little perplexing at first sight, but easy to get after a moment or two, but StringFormat help is near obfuscated as far as I see. I think maybe 10-20 simple examples would help out greatly beyond searching the forum for examples.

Automatic ticket cleanup.

It's a complicated function with complicated syntax. It's not really the kind of function for somebody to stumble on and use, it's the kind of function you go specifically looking for because you know you need it and know how to use it.

I'm not going to close this yet because maybe somebody can suggest a way to improve it. Just saying "more examples" doesn't help, however, because once you understand one example, you understand them all.

I try to add some but Valik is right as the function as a very complicated syntax
